Shaw Rising

Special | 57m 37s | Video has closed captioning.

Shaw University started in 1865 with a bible class for newly freed slaves in Raleigh, North Carolina, and fought prejudice post-Civil War, to become a co-educational college, teaching medicine, law, and religion. Despite Jim Crow laws, Shaw rises again during the Civil Rights Movement and today, as the oldest Historically Black College in the South, continues to face challenges to its existence.
